Portia de Rossi accuses Steven Seagal of sexual misconduct during film audition

Actor Portia de Rossi alleged in a tweet that Steven Seagal once unzipped his trousers in front of her.

After this allegation, Twitter was flooded with support for De Rossi, including from her wife, Ellen DeGeneres.

Telling him she had been told there was no nudity, Seagal allegedly told her "there is off-camera nudity".

Shortly after Guerrero made her allegations, DailyMailTV unearthed startling audio of Seagal complaining about female reporters while promoting his 1988 film Above the Law, referring to one in particular as a "dumb c**t" who "belongs in a zoo". "I got out of there unscathed", she said. "The Good Wife" actress Julianna Margulies recalled when she "squirmed" her way out of being alone with Seagal in a hotel room.

U.S. action movie actor Steven Seagal was the latest Hollywood man in the crosshairs of mounting sexual misconduct allegations on Thursday, following the downfall of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.


De Rossi said she ran out and called her agent, who replied, "Well, I didn't know if he was your type". "It's a long story... but I never was raped, and I never was harmed, and I don't know how I got out of that hotel room".

'I lived in Brooklyn, and I said, "Oh, I don't do that".

The agent was "unfazed", De Rossi tweeted. The part was hers, but she had to go back to Seagal's home for a private rehearsal. I don't travel. I don't have money for a cab.' And I didn't, "Margulies recalled of the encounter". It always starts with 'I'm a healer.

And back in 2010, actress Jenny McCarthy claimed that Seagal once asked her to remove her clothes during an audition for that same movie, Under Siege 2. Seagal's lawyer, Marty Singer-who now represents stars like Ratner-denied the claims, calling them "false, fabricated and defamatory".

Last week, Julianna Margulies said she was intimidated by Steven Seagal, who showed her a gun in a hotel room.
